Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Galactic

When: Sun., March 22, 8 p.m. 2015

Straight outta the bayou, Galactic brings a funky energy that few other bands replicate with any sort of authority. Theirs is a sound that dwells hundreds of miles away from our frozen Cleveland terra, making tonight’s show more of a vacation than anything. G’head and cue up Carnivale Electricos and take in the New Orleans-inspired vibes of “Magalenha” and “Carnivale Time.” Hell, even the interlude “Guero Bounce” is a danceable highlight (and fully capable of morphing into a longer jam segment, clearly). In between albums, the band drops singles pretty frequently. Last year’s “Higher and Higher,” featuring JJ Grey, drips with the one-two soul-funk combo we’ve all come to know and love. Here, and throughout the band’s tenure, drummer Stanton Moore just absolutely shines. (Sandy)
